For some undocumented immigrants, Obama’s executive action doesn’t change anything

Obama's salvo of his constitutional breach on immigration is only his beginning.  If he can do this and get by with it, it is only a matter of time when he begins to open the gates further for millions more.  He may want a brass plaque in hero hall...but it will not hang in the USA.   It will be an honored shrine in Mexico, Salvador, Guatemala, etc.

GRUBER HAS BEEN OBAMA ADVISER FOR MORE THAN EIGHT YEARS

President Barack Obama and a long list of Democrats are now arguing that MIT economist Jonathan Gruber wasn’t intimately involved in writing Obamacare, but yet another video shows Obama admitting that he’s “stolen ideas” from Jon Gruber himself — “liberally.” 

Obama spoke at the Brookings Institution in a video posted by the conservative group American Commitment on Monday. The president was touting his policy ideas, which stemmed from what he called some of the “brightest minds from academia and policy circles.”… Gruber advised Obama’s first campaign in 2006 and went to the White House at least a dozen times while Obama’s been in office, in addition to receiving an almost $400,000 contract to advise on the health-care law.” Watch the American Commitment video clip here.

OBAMA NOT BUDGING ON PIPELINE. There is no vaccine for STUPID!!

President Obama would not budge from the “dim” view his administration has of a legislative push on the Keystone pipeline approved by the House or Rep. today.

At a press conference in Burma, the president said he wants to let a review process – now in its sixth year - run its course. Pressed by Republican leadership to state where he stands, Obama said his administration believes the project should be judged on the basis of whether it accelerates climate change. 

In his arrogant stupidity Obama also insisted the pipeline would not be a “massive jobs bill” and would have no effect on U.S. gas prices.  Amazing that, in the face of overwhelming evidence to the opposite, he remains intransigent as well as mired in a swamp of stupidity.

Senate Republicans and several moderate Democrats have pushed for the project to be approved for years. Supporters say the construction of the pipeline would create tens of thousands of jobs. But the project divides Democrats, with environmentalists in opposition while some unions as well as energy-state and business-minded lawmakers support it. The Senate is expected to hold a vote on the pipeline Tuesday. 

"If I Were The Devil"

Most of you will recall the first radio talk show/news journalist Paul Harvey.  He was a famous
commentator for ABC radio  Paul died at age of 90 in 2008.  He was known for his closing statement of each news broadcast which was usually a short monologue re: current problems of the day.
Below you can hear his radio broadcast on April 3, 1965.
Millions of Americans listened to his programs which were broadcast to over 1,200 radio stations nationwide. This one is known as the "If I were the Devil" commentary.  Pretty prophetic, and pretty scaryl

"This piece sent by Bill O. a Corner buddy in Georgia and we thank him.   As I read through them I just picked one, pretty much at random, to look at its authenticity...It really turned out to be an ass-burner!!  It is probably a pretty good example of the shit that OUR governmental representatives do to take care of themselves and to hell with the people that pay them and put them there, while trusting them to SERVE us.  After you cruise the Ryan list take a look at the piece I dug out with a little research.  If it does not piss you off, you are not batting from the correct side of the plate."

Charles Rangel: Calling Tea Party 'White Crackers' Was 'Endearment'

Rep. Charles Rangel says tea party supporters should not be offended by his reference to
them as "white crackers," asserting the reference to be "a term of endearment."

During an interview Monday with "The Huffington Post", the 22-term New York Democrat was asked about his use of the term last year, when he referred to tea partyers as "the same people we faced in the South, with the white crackers, the dogs and the police."

Rangel replied that he thought "cracker" was "a term of endearment," adding that "with all of the feelings I have against these people who have been against justice, fair play, equality, and the freedoms as we know it, if I offended them by calling them a white cracker, for that I apologize." 


Hey Charlie....if "White Crackers in the south" is a term of endearment, how about do you feel about "The Big Jig in the Oval Office?"   OOOPS... Sorry if I offended anyonel.    F.

OBAMA INTENSIFIES HIS WAR ON COAL


That loud bang heard in the wee hours today was President Obama’s most recent
broadside in the administration’s war on coal. With lawmakers returning to Washington today for a lame-duck session before Republicans take control of Congress, the president touted a climate change deal with China that is certain to deepen battle lines over the administration’s environmental goals. Even after liberal environmentalist Tom Steyer poured $75 million dollars to promote climate change only to see Democrats suffer crushing losses - particularly in coal-producing states - the president seems determined to aggressively pursue his agenda through executive action and agency regulations. 

The deal with China, which leans heavily on EPA and other agency mandates that industry says cost jobs, is one more sign that Obama is ignoring an electorate focused on improving the economy. And like his go-it-alone on immigration while this move may appeal to his base, it also further poisons the well with Congress at a time American voters say they want less politics and more results.

President Barack Obama announced Wednesday that the U.S. has set a new goal to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases by between 26 percent and 28 percent over the next 11 years as part of a climate change agreement with China. The new target is a drastic increase from earlier in Obama’s presidency, when he pledged to cut emissions by 17 percent by 2020. By contrast, Obama’s counterpart, Xi Jinping, did not pledge any reductions by a specific date, but rather set a target for China’s emissions to peak by 2030, or earlier if possible. Xi also pledged to increase the share of energy that China will derive from sources other than fossil fuels.

This unrealistic plan, that the president would dump on his successor, would ensure higher utility rates and far fewer jobs.” Said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., in a statement.]

OBAMACARE ARCHITECT: VOTER ‘STUPIDITY’ PROMPTED COST CONCEALING

Just a few days before Americans get the pleasure of wading through the upgraded but still not completely fixed Healthcare.gov Website, another bombshell that paints a picture of public deception in pushing through the president’s unpopular health law has been dropped by ObamaCare’s chief architect.

You’ve got to hand it to MIT economist Jonathan Gruber. The guy described as the ‘Obamacare architect’ is a viral YouTube sensation and you can see it below in case you  missed it on your tube.                             

 A few months back, he was caught on tape admitting that Obamacare doesn’t provide subsidies for federally-run insurance exchanges; it’s now the topic of a new case before the Supreme Court. [Monday] a new video surfaced in which Gruber said that ‘the stupidity of the American voter’ made it important for him and Democrats to hide Obamacare’s true costs from the public. ‘That was really, really critical for the thing to pass,’ said Gruber. ‘But I’d rather have this law than not.’ In other words, the ends—imposing Obamacare upon the public—justified the means. That is exactly the attitude held by most wild eyed liberals,who are hell bent on installing a big brother, bureaucratic government controlling every facet of our lives.

The new Gruber comments come from a panel discussion that he joined on October 17, 2013 at the University of Pennsylvania’s Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics. 

If there was ever a perfect example of the sleazy Obama "Leadership" it is this damning description of how everyone got suckered and ripped off by our Socialist occupant in the Whitehouse.

"The drubbin’, thumpin’, poundin’ was a two-part wave, a significant Republican rise in the U.S. Senate and a Democratic collapse in the governorships. 
It was one of those nights neither party ever forgets.
Republicans won not only because of a favorable map. In solid Democratic states, they won big or came close. Nor were the results due only to low midterm turnout. Nate Cohn, in the New York Times , noted that turnout in Colorado was up over 2010, yet Republican Cory Gardner beat incumbent Sen. Mark Udall with room to spare. The sheer number of blowouts was mind-boggling. Sen. Mitch McConnell was supposed to win in Kentucky, but not by 15 points. In Arkansas the Republican challenger, Tom Cotton, beat Democratic incumbent, Sen. Mark Pryor, by 17 points. In Georgia, where the Senate race was assumed to be close, the Republican won by eight. Republican Pat Roberts, left for dead in Kansas months ago, won by 10.

Among the governors, Republican John Kasich won re-election in swing-state Ohio by an astounding 31 points. In South Carolina, incumbent Nikki Haley beat her Democratic challenger by 15 points. In solid-blue Illinois, the Republican challenger, Bruce Rauner, turned out the incumbent by five points; in solid-Democratic Maryland, the Republican candidate for governor won by a solid five. Scott Walker, perpetually under siege in Wisconsin, the focus of public-employee-union ferocity and targeted nationally by Democrats who needed to knock him off, also won by five.
It was not in the least a charisma election, a sweeping expression of support for a character or personality or movement. It was a message election. Sweeps like this come down to policy and governance. America on Tuesday told one party no, you’re not doing it right, we don’t like what we’re seeing, and your preoccupations (birth control, “War on Women”) are not our priorities.
The president said he was not on the ballot but his policies were. Those policies were resoundingly repudiated.
***
But that is only one of the amazing things that happened this week. The second is how the president responded.
A sweep this size tends to resolve some things. The landscape shifts, political figures accommodate themselves to it.
Common sense says a chastened president would acknowledge the obvious—some things aren’t working, he has made some mistakes—and, in Mr. Obama’s case, hit the reset button with Congress. Reach out, be humble. Humility has power. It shows people that you have some give—you get the message, you are capable of self-correcting.
That is not what he’s doing. The president is instead doubling down on hostility, antagonism and distance.
What a mistake. What a huge, historic mistake, not only for him but also for his party.
In his news conference on Wednesday, Mr. Obama was grim and grudging, barely bothering to hide suppressed anger. “Republicans had a good night.” He was unwilling to explain or characterize what happened. “I’ll leave it to all of you and the professional pundits to pick through yesterday’s results.” He took no personal responsibility: The people sent a message and it is that Washington must work “as hard as they do.” He was unwilling to say what went wrong, why his party’s candidates didn’t want him near them on the trail. His answers were long, filibuster-y, meant to run out the clock. It was clear the White House wanted to say he met with reporters for more than an hour. He did. At one point he tried to smile but couldn’t quite pull it off; it came across as a Nixon-like flexing of the rictus muscles. (I tried to describe it in my notes. “Hatey” was the best I could do.)
There were airy generalities—“This town doesn’t work well”—and a few humblebrags: “I have a unique responsibility to try and make this town work”; “I’m the guy who’s elected by everybody.”
Most seriously and consequentially—the huge mistake—is that Mr. Obama said he will address immigration through executive action unless Congress sends a comprehensive bill to him that he finds attractive. He said this just after a news conference in which the presumed next Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, in a post-election statement that was actually conciliatory and constructive, said any such move by the president would “poison the well” with Congress. It would be experienced by Republicans on the Hill as pure aggression.
The president’s use of broad executive action would kill any chance of compromise or progress with Congress. And the amazing thing is that this isn’t even in his interests.
What is in his interests is for him to go forward in a spirit of compromise and try to reach agreements on the Hill through negotiations. This would be a relief after six years of nonstop acrimony. Republicans need an end of acrimony too: They want to show that they’re not just shutdown artists, as their foes say, but that they are a governing party in whose hands the country is safe. After a few bills were passed, people would start to feel that they were seeing progress. This would help the president get a new sentence defining him. The current sentence is something like, “Wow, that didn’t work, he really had the wrong skill sets.” Two years of governing peace might get him, “He had a dynamic first two years, lost the thread, was re-elected, then there was a lot of mess but he stabilized and got serious.” That’s not a bad sentence.
It is confounding—not surprising but stunning, unhelpful and ill-judged—that the president is instead going for antagonism, combat and fruitless friction.
This is not just poor strategy, it seems to me to be mildly delusional. Chris Matthews erupted on MSNBC: “There’s something in this guy that just plays to his constituency and acts like there’s no other world out there!”
That’s true. And deeply strange in a politician. It’s as if he doesn’t think he has to work with others, he only has to be right. I think Mr. Obama sees himself as a centrist because he often resists the pressures of the leftward-most edge of his base. Therefore in his imagination he is in the middle, the center. If he is in the middle of a great centrist nation, how can they turn on him? The answer: They are confused. This is their flaw, not his. He’s not going to let their logical flaws change his game.
And so the future may well be nonstop combat between the Hill and the White House. If the president does a big executive action, the Republican Congress will no longer think negotiations and deals are possible. They will over the coming years send him legislation that they can pass with the support of their majorities and moderate Democrats. If he vetoes, they will try to override.
The Republicans will be set up as the party passing bills that go in certain directions on certain issues, and those bills will no doubt be generally popular, or popular with the Republican base. If the bills are vetoed and can’t be overridden, Republicans will say they are frustrated by that willful loner—that obstructionist—in the White House.
That will probably set up the GOP pretty well for 2016. It will keep the party’s activists in a constant state of agitated alert.
Once again the president is doing his party no favors.
This is no way to run a railroad. The president here is doing what he has been doing for a while, helping Republicans look good. That is an amazing strategy for a Democratic president to adopt. "

PITY BARACK OBAMA. A pariah in his own time.

"At every turn he hurt Democrat candidates by linking them to him and his policies, and therefore to his unpopularity. It was as if he couldn't help himself in making the election about HIM despite the old saw that “all politics is local.” Democrats wish it had been more true this year." !!

The "American Spectator" article below is a very penetrating and obvious analysis of why the only thing Obama is leading is a failed Presidency.  The piece clearly explains how he lacks the values that creates leadership.  In 40 years in business the best definition of leadership I ever heard was:  "The ability to get people to follow you...VOLUNTARILY!"

As I screamed from the stump six years ago it was foolish to elect a commodity with not one smidgen of evidence for leadership, business experience, economic training, military experience, employment or successful public service.  Obama was devoid of virtually every facet of skill or value that the President of the most powerful nation ever requires.

WE DID IT!!! And ...We Kicked Ass !!!


Talk about Hope and Change !!!  Finally after 6 years of malaise, stumbling, and embarrassing incompetence....we now have a reason for real hope with this change.

In Arkansas - “GOP Rep. Tom Cotton unseated two-term Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor…”

In West Virgina - “[Republican] Shelley Moore Capito beat Democrat Natalie Tennant.”A bad night for the White House on Tuesday got worse as a number of Democratic gubernatorial candidates for whom President Obama campaigned in the final weeks of the midterm elections fell to their Republican challengers…The most stinging loss might have been in Obama’s home state of Illinois, where Democratic incumbent Pat Quinn lost to Republican challenger Bruce Rauner…In neighboring Wisconsin…[a]ppearances by the president and first lady were not enough to prevent Gov. Scott Walker — a 2016 Republican presidential hopeful many Democrats hoped to knock off — from winning reelection over Democrat Mary Burke. In Michigan, the president’s work for Democrat Mark Schauer again fell short. The president headlined a rally for the Democrat over the weekend, but Schauer failed to oust Republican Rick Snyder.”

GOP holds their own - “In a vital set of victories that helped put the party on the path to the majority, Republicans also held onto all three [GOP held] seats that were in contention this year. In Kentucky, [Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell] defeated Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes, Kentucky’s secretary of state. Republican David Perdue, former CEO of Dollar General, beat Democrat Michelle Nunn for the open Georgia Senate seat; and three-term Republican Sen. Pat Roberts survived the political scare of his life by beating independent challenger Greg Orman in Kansas.

Unforunately theDems hold on to New Hampshire - In a setback for us Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen beat Republican challenger Scott Brown, despite Brown's late-surging campaign.

Icing on the cake? - The Senate race in Alaska also is not yet called. Some ballots are still on their way by dog sled.

Battle for the Bayou goes on - The Louisiana Senate race will go to a runoff on Dec. 6…Based on exit polling, Fox projects that three-term Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu and Republican challenger Bill Cassidy will both fail to exceed 50 percent of the vote, sending both into a runoff, this time without competition from candidates such as Republican Rob Maness.”


And....we did the CHANGE also in the gubernatorial races..AND i WLL BE DAMNED..EVEN IN THAT BASTION OF DEMOCRATS....ILLINOIS.

A bad night for the White House on Tuesday got worse as a number of Democratic gubernatorial candidates for whom President Obama campaigned in the final weeks of the midterm elections fell to their Republican challengers…The most stinging loss might have been in Obama’s home state of Illinois, where Democratic incumbent Pat Quinn lost to Republican challenger Bruce Rauner…In neighboring Wisconsin…[a]ppearances by the president and first lady were not enough to prevent Gov.

Why Obama’s $30B Digital Health Record Plan Is Failing -

If you ever wondered why you voted for Obama here is another reason to convince you that you have gotten your head out of your duffel bag.

The Obama administration’s $30 billion effort to encourage hospitals to digitize their health records and modernize the health care system seems to be failing--with half the participating health providers threatening to bail out of the program .
In a document obtained by The Washington Examiner, Wells Fargo security analysts estimate, “Almost half of providers will drop out during the current stage of the program.”

Another tricky Obama Administration transparency failure.

          Did you receive your Medicare Handbook for 2015 yesterday? 

Anyone voting for the Democrats in the forthcoming elections deserves to get the hidden increases that are coming after November 4th.

If you have already received yours in the mail please turn to page 12 and go down to
the bottom of the page and read Find out what you pay for Medicare (Part A
and Part B) . It states that the premium and deductible amounts were not
available at the time of printing. It further states you may call
1-800-633-4227 to get the most up-to-date info.

I did just that and talked with a Medicare representative. She told me that
they probably would not have those figures in until the end of the first
week or possibly the second week of November.

Now, let that sink in!

As soon as she stated that to me I replied , "My, isn't that convenient for
the Obama Administration to actually hold off on those figures until after
the 2014 election results."

There was dead silence on the other end of the line. I told her thank you
and that I would call back.

You see on our Social Security increase for next year we are only receiving
an increase of around 1%. Even the military are getting just over 1%. You
can bet after the November 4th election the increases for Medicare A & B
will be greater than any 1%. That is why they are delaying what the
increases will be. Because if they had put it in that handbook, any elderly
would be voting against the Democrats.

So anyone voting for the Democrats in the forthcoming elections deserves to
get the increases that are coming after November 4th.

OBAMACARE. And the disaster contnues. Thank you Barack...Good job you @#/!+**/ idiot.

Hi Fred, 

 I did already vote in the "early voting" thing, and in Florida, at least in Lee County, we do have to show photo id

. The really scary thing for me right now is that our former Republican Governor, turned Independent, and now Democratic, is leading our current Republican governor in the polls. 

 All I can hope is that all those illegals on the east coast don't vote and put him back in office.  He's a total jerk!

Prime Minister Julia Gillard(Australia)'s speech on immigrants...

Just over two years ago Julia Gillard gave this speech and instruction to the Muslim community. (Putin did the same in Russia)


Could you, in the furthest recesses of your mind,ever imagine the nut-less wonder in our Oval Office giving this presentation in our America.  If he had had the balls to start with we would not be in the situation we now find ourselves

September 29, 2012 at 12:39pm

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the  government targeted radicals in a bid to head off  potential terror attacks.

Separately, Gillard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying she supported spy agencies monitoring the nation’s mosques.
Quote:   ‘IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT.  Take It Or Leave It.

“I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.  ‘This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom’   We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish,  Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of  our society . Learn the language!’

‘Most Australians believe in God.  This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because  Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools.  If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.  ‘We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why.  All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and  peaceful enjoyment with us.’

‘This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this.  But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, ‘THE  RIGHT TO LEAVE‘.’

‘If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE.   We didn’t force you to come here.   You asked to be here.   So accept the country  YOU accepted.’

The black community is beginning to wake up to the very destructive trade off of more welfare for fewer jobs....

Powerful: African-American leaders question, shun Democratic monopoly on black vote

Three sentences worth considering

"When even one American - who has done nothing wrong-is forced by fear to shut his mouth and close his mind, then all Americans are in peril" - Harry Truman
These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:

1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics,
but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.
Funny how that works.

2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money.
How come we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money?
What's interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the second didn't.

Think about it..... Last but not least

3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for
our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII,
but we are not stopping the payments to illegal aliens?

Am I the only one missing something ?

Here we go again!

                   Muslim!  What an xymoron!

In the meantime the so called moderates will be nowhere to be seen amongst those calling for justice, peace and sanity.  "They" protest by the thousands at the slightest perceived provocation, flaunt our laws, illegally take advantage of our entitlements and otherwise behave atrociously  throughout the country which has has graciously allowed "them" to reside.  But, where are the "Muslim's for peace and tolerance" organizations??

How stupid can society be?  We are committing suicide!

Call for Congress to immediately place a ban on any immigration of any more Muslim's, or anyone from a predominately Muslim Country!"

Dear Joe...

Can you even imagine a closet Socialist/Muslim sympathizer/anti-business/incompetent/military hating/american apologist/ inexperienced, pretending leader allowing such an act?   He could not even have the balls to make a man-sized move like protecting us from the Ebola invasion that is around the corner.  How could you expect him to go against his brethren.

Our nation is in a storm and we are all on the sailboat.  A  storm that was invited to our doorstep because the young, dumb, black and brown, unions, and sadly the women, the uninformed and government dependents were stupid enough to be sucked in by a smooth and slick con-artist.  Funny thing is ....they will be the first to pay the price of being proud of being stupid !  And, the Captain of our vessel does not even know how to set the sail, drop the anchor or lower the sail or head into the wind.  We are rudderless !!!

Obama was under the impression he could reverse the laws of the universe.  He, and unfortunately WE, are suffering for HIS lack of even a "SMIDGEN"  of knowing how to manage an economy, a military, international relationships, or a government.

It is time to choke the chicken.  Any declared patriot, Republican, Independent, Conservative who does not get off their ass and vote to get the Senate out of the hands of the liberal national detractors will deserve the fruits of their failure.

Salud!!

Houston's First Lesbian Mayor DEMANDS to See ALL Sermons from Christian Pastors

Houston mayor, Annise Parker, the city’s first openly lesbian mayor, is conducting a litigious witch-hunt against religious leaders, issuing subpoenas that demand the sermons of pastors who may have spoken on the topic of homosexuality, gender identity, or Parker herself. Pastors who do not comply may be held in contempt of court.

First the "Redskins" and now "Goodbye, Porky Pig"

                                  This should bother every American. 

 Islam has brought about women-only classes and swimming times at taxpayer-funded universities and public pools; that Christians, Jews, and Hindus have been banned from serving on juries where Muslim defendants are being judged, Piggy banks and Porky Pig tissue dispensers have been banned from workplaces because they offend Islamist sensibilities. Ice cream has been discontinued at certain Burger King locations because the picture on the wrapper looks similar to the Arabic script for Allah, public schools are pulling pork from their menus, on and on in the news papers….

It's death by a thousand cuts, or inch-by-inch as some refer to it, and most Americans have no idea that this battle is being waged every day across America. By not fighting back, by allowing groups to obfuscate what is really happening, and not insisting that the Islamists adapt to our own culture, the United States is cutting its own throat with a politically correct knife, and helping to further the Islamists agenda. Sadly, it appears that today's America would rather be politically correct than victorious.

Any doubts, just Google Thomas Jefferson vs the Muslim World.  the link below might get you there faster.  Interesting if you have a thing for historyl

U.S WAKE UP!! Muslims Taking Over a Small Town in Tennessee

Thanks to our Columbine Correspondent Joe for getting this piece to us.

Obama...on the campaign trail again...

Fund raising and election-airing instead of fighting the war he brought upon us.

The White House is preparing a new emoji-based social media campaign to make it’s economic pitch to young people… Starting Thursday, White House social media accounts will blast out charts, graphs, and yes, emojis, aimed at catching the eye of young voters weeks before the November elections… Younger Americans have traditionally been a Democratic base group, and Obama’s team has done a masterful job of turning them out in his presidential campaigns. But college aged voters have much lower turn out rates in non-presidential election years, and the White House is hoping to prop up those numbers during next month’s crucial election that will determine control of the Senate.

A new Gallup poll suggests voter turnout will be low in November, with higher Republican turnout predicted… Gallup found enthusiasm higher among the GOP, a result that suggests Democrats may have a more difficult time on get-out-the-vote efforts needed to support their candidates. Among those motivated to vote, 44 percent were Republican and 28 percent were Democrats.

The President is returning to his old formulas hoping to turn the tide of unpopularity his failed presidency has brought to his arena,  He is focusing on the young, the dumb, and the undecided. .College aged voters have much lower turn out rates in non-presidential election years, and the White House is hoping to prop up those numbers during next month’s crucial election that will determine control of the Senate.

His road shows will be lasered on Latinos, women and black,.  He will tease the Latinos with amnesty.  He will bullshit the blacks with confusing rhetoric and try to convince them that his failed economic policies were not responsible for the recession that hit them with a much higher impact than all other segments of the population.  His fiction will also attempt to convince women that they are in a war.

One thing for sure is that he will not have anything to say about ISIS, the Keystone Pipeline, the VA, IRS /Lois Lerner, Benghazi, Leon Panetta, David Gates, the CIA or the early pull out in Iraq.

WE NEED THE SENATE to dull the knife that Obama has put at the throat of our nation for the last 6 years.

Panetta Knew and the told Obama....confirmed !

Former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly Tuesday there is no question that the Obama administration’s decision to not maintain a presence in Iraq was a mistake, and President Obama needs to ‘develop the will to get into the ring and fight’ against the Islamic State.


You sure you want to talk about the economy, Mr. President? - :

Acording to the latest CNBC All-America Economic survey… Just 24 percent of Americans say they are extremely or quite confident in Obama's economic policies and goals, down from 33 percent when the question was last asked in June 2013, the previous low-point of the Obama presidency. And 44 percent of the public say they have no confidence at all in the president on the economy, tied with the prior low in August 2012.”

DON’T COME AROUND HERE NO MORE
President Obama’s line about “every single one” of his policies being on the ballot this fall is headed into the history books as a defining phrase about this midterm. Candidates continue to distance themselves from President Obama ahead of the mid-term elections.  A New York times piece describes Obama as “an isolated political figure who is viewed as a liability to Democrats in the very states where voters by the thousands had once stood to cheer him.” Tuesday night’s debates were proof of that.

"You Worry Me!"

"YOU WORRY ME!"
By Captain John Maniscalco, American Airlines Pilot delivered in 2002.  It is very appropriate that we resurrect his piece with the turmoil in the Mideast our President has brought to our shores.  Captain Maniscalco presented his insight after reading about a Arab/Muslim Doctor who had whined about about being 'profiled' and checked out three times when boarding airline flights...shortly after 911.

I've been trying to say this since 911, but you worry me.  I wish you didn't.  I wish when I walked down the streets of this country that I love, that your color and culture still blended with the beautiful human landscape we enjoy in this country.  But you don't blend in anymore.  I notice you, and it worries me.

I notice you because I can't help it anymore.  People from your homelands, professing to be Muslims, have been attacking and killing my fellow citizens and our friends for more than 20 years now.  I don't fully understand their grievances and hate, but I know that nothing can justify the inhumanity of their attacks.

On September 11, ARAB-MUSLIMS hijacked four jetliners in my country.  They cut the throats of women in front of children and brutally stabbed to death others.  They took control of those planes and crashed them into buildings, killing thousands of proud fathers, loving sons, wise grandparents, elegant daughters, best friends, favorite coaches, fearless public servants, and children's mothers.

The Palestinians celebrated, the Iraqis were overjoyed as was most of the Arab world.  So, I
notice you now.  I don't want to be worried. I don't want to be consumed by the same rage, hate and prejudice that has destroyed the soul of these terrorists.  But I need your help.  As a rational American, trying to protect my country and family in an irrational and unsafe world, I must know how to tell the difference between you, and the Arab/Muslim terrorist.

How do I differentiate between the true Arab/Muslim Americans and the Arab/Muslim terrorists in our communities who are attending our schools, enjoying our parks, and living in OUR communities under the protection of OUR constitution, while they plot the next attack that will slaughter MORE of the same good neighbors and children?

The events of September 11 changed the answer... It is not MY responsibility to determine which of you embraces our great country, with ALL of its religions, with ALL of its different citizens, with all of its faults.  It is time for every Arab/Muslim in this country to determine it for me.

I want to know, I DEMAND to know and I have a right to know, whether or not you love America ..... Do you pledge allegiance to its flag?  Do you proudly display it in front of your house, or on your car?  Do you pray in your many daily prayers that Allah will bless this nation; that He will protect it and let it prosper?  Or do you pray that Allah with destroy it in one of your Jihads?  Are you thankful for the freedom that this nation affords?  A freedom that was paid for by the blood of hundreds of thousands of patriots who gave their lives for this country?  Are you willing to preserve this freedom by also paying the ultimate sacrifice?  Do you love America??  If this is your commitment, then I need YOU to start letting ME know about it

 Your Muslim leaders in this nation should be flooding the media at this time with hard facts on your faith, and what hard actions YOU are taking as a community and as a religion to protect the
United States of America.  Please, no more benign overtures of regret for the death of the innocent, because I worry about who you regard as innocent.... No more benign overtures of condemnation for the unprovoked attacks, because I worry about what is unprovoked to you.  I am not interested in any more sympathy; I am interested only in action.  What will you do for America - our great country - at this time of crisis, at this time of war?

I want to see Arab-Muslims waving the AMERICAN flag in the streets.  I want to hear you chanting 'Allah Bless America'.  I want to see young Arab/Muslim men enlisting in the military.  I want to see a commitment of money, time and emotion to the victims of this butchering and to this nation as a whole.

The FBI has a list of over 400 people they want to talk to regarding the WTC attack.  Many of these people live and socialize right now in Muslim communities.  You know them.  You know where they are.  Hand them over to us, NOW!  But I have seen little even approaching this sort of action.  Instead I have seen an already closed and secretive community close even tighter.  You have disappeared from the streets.  You have posted armed security guards at your facilities.  You have threatened lawsuits.  You have screamed for protection from reprisals.

The very few Arab/Muslim representatives that HAVE appeared in the media were defensive and equivocating.  They seemed more concerned with making sure that the United States proves who was responsible before taking action.  They seemed more concerned with protecting their fellow Muslims from violence directed towards them in the United States and abroad than they did with supporting our country and denouncing 'leaders' like Khadafi, Hussein, Farrakhan, and Arafat.

IF the true teachings of Islam proclaim tolerance and peace and love for all people, then I want chapter and verse from the Koran and statements from popular Muslim leaders to back it up.  What good is it if the teachings in the Koran are good, pure, and true, when your 'leaders' ARE teaching fanatical interpretations, terrorism, and intolerance?  It matters little how good Islam SHOULD BE if huge numbers of the world's Muslims interpret the teachings of Mohammed incorrectly and adhere to a degenerative form of the religion.  A form that has been demonstrated to us over and over again.  A form whose structure is built upon a foundation of violence, death, and suicide.  A form whose members are recruited from the prisons around the world.  A form whose members (some as young as five years old) are seen day after day, week in and week out, year after year, marching in the streets around the world, burning effigies of our presidents, burning the American flag, shooting weapons into the air.  A form whose members convert from a peaceful religion, only to take up arms against the great United States of America, the country of their birth.  A form whose rules are so twisted, that their traveling members refuse to show their faces at airport security checkpoints, in the name of Islam.

We will NEVER allow the attacks of September 11, or any others for that matter, to take away that which is so precious to us -- our rights under the greatest constitution in the world.  I want to know where every Arab Muslim in this country stands and I think it is my right and the right of every true citizen of this country to DEMAND it.  A right paid for by the blood of thousands of my brothers and sisters who died protecting the very constitution that is protecting you and your family.

I am pleading with you to let me know.  I want you here as my brother, my neighbor, my friend, as a fellow American...... But there can be no gray areas or ambivalence regarding your allegiance, and it is up to YOU, to show ME, where YOU stand.  Until then,

"YOU WORRY ME!"


Shootout Erupts Between AZ Farmer and Illegal Alien Invader .

It would be good to know if the bad guy ended up back on the street. Probably did.


Just in case you know anyone who gives a damn...

....and has the brains to do a little math and fundamental conjecture, and, understand what happens when our electorate puts someone in the Oval offices that does not have even a freshman's understanding of a beginning economics class.

Everyone knows that the US has an entitlement-driven spending problem, but very few people understand the true nature of the situation, which is actually quite dire, looming up ahead of us. In less than 10 years, at current debt projection growth rates, the third-largest expenditure of the United States government will be interest expense. The other three largest categories are all entitlement programs. Discretionary spending, whether for defense or anything else, is becoming an ever-smaller part of the budget. Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid now command nearly two-thirds of the national budget and rising. Ironically, polls suggest that 80% of Americans are concerned about the rising deficit and debt, but 69% oppose Medicare cutbacks, and 78% oppose Medicaid cutbacks.

How stupid is this???   It is exactly like the dumbshit that keeps pounding his head against the wall thinking that it will feel so good if he ever stops.

At some point in the middle of the next decade, entitlement spending plus interest payments will be more than the total revenue of the government. The deficit that we are currently experiencing will explode. The following chart is what will happen if nothing changes. But this chart also cannot happen, because the bond market and the economy will simply implode before it does.

JUST READ THE NUMBERS!   AND THE KEEP GETTING WORSE.   The only reason we are in this situation is the Liberals can't read, judge or do simple mathematics.

Just a reminder of what we had....

I miss Ronnie!!  I sure as hell will NOT miss Barack.  Reagan is turning over in his grave as he views what became of our leadership position in the world.  Sickeningly sad.  Watch this reminder.  It has been around before...but worth the memory.

Obama's Illinois: Food Stamp Growth Exceeds New Jobs

Economy In Crisis:  A new study by the Illinois Policy Institute shows in the past four years, the number of new food-stamp recipients in the state has outpaced new jobs nearly 2-to-1.

Illinois Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn, locked in a tight re-election battle with self-made billionaire Republican Bruce Rauner, has been arguing that Illinois, arguably the bluest of blue states, has turned the fiscal corner and is on its way back.

The recovery may be slower than Quinn wants it to be — but, he says, it is real.
It is an odd recovery, though, that makes more people dependent on government through food stamps than on a paycheck.

A stunning analysis by Michael Lucci, director of jobs and growth at the Illinois Policy
Institute, shows that from January 2010, when job losses in Illinois bottomed out, to July of this year, the state gained only 240,000 jobs. Over the same period, it added 420,000 food stamp recipients.

Real the Illinois "recovery" is not. As Lucci reports, there are some 300,000 fewer Illinoisans working today and 170,000 fewer payroll jobs than in January 2008. Illinois' labor-force participation rate is at its lowest point since 1979, and the state is dead last in private-sector job creation for the first seven months of 2014.
It doesn't help that in 2011, Quinn kept his promise to raise taxes on everyone in Illinois by 67% in what was supposed to be a temporary fix to deal with the state government's pension crisis. The tax hike is now permanent, Illinois' fiscal woes continue, and a clear signal has been sent to businesses that the Land of Lincoln is not a friendly business environment.

Wisconsin, Indiana and Michigan, all states with GOP governors.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker showed that it is possible to take on the teacher unions with their bloated pensions while reducing the tax burden and promoting job growth. Indiana and Michigan have become right-to-work states, recognizing that forced unionism stifles growth.
Illinois unions have taken notice and are concerned. Yet they try to rationalize the attractions of friendlier business climates in traditional rhetoric.
"Illinois is part of the pattern — these rich folks are going wherever they see an opportunity, just like they did in Wisconsin, Indiana and Michigan," said Henry Bayer, former executive director of AFSCME Council 31, representing 95,000 Illinois workers and retirees. "Illinois is experiencing some real difficulties, so they think they can make some inroads."

This is not surprising. Illinois, the land of rising taxes, ranks first in home foreclosures, according to Bankrate.com, which tracks home foreclosures across the nation. One in every 747 homes in Illinois has foreclosed vs. one in 1,200 nationally.

The natives are restless. In January, the state had the country's third highest unemployment rate at 8.7%, the highest unfunded pension liability at $100 billion and the lowest credit rating. It has suffered 13 downgrades from the three major rating agencies since Quinn took over as governor from the disgraced and currently incarcerated Rod Blagojevich in 2009.


Blue states in thrall to big government and big labor are economic wrecks. The people of Illinois face a choice of voting with their feet or their hands for a different path come November.

This is REALLY a scary scenario !!!

Hold on to your seats folks because this will rock you.

The rumor Mill in Washington is that Obama wants a Supreme Court Judge to  retire quickly (I.e., Ginsberg) so he can nominate his pick while Harry Reed and the Dem's still control the US Senate. 

Remember, this is a LIFE TIME appointment. Who is his rumored pick? Are you ready for this? "ERIC HOLDER!!!"

Remember Harry Reed changed the rules of the senate so the
Republicans couldn't stop it either. What then people? What do we do then if this happens?

This was a discussion topic on "The Five". It was brought up
By Dana Perino, Bush's former press secretary. Bob Beckle also
Indicated this possibility on the show.

I'll tell you what. If Obama want's a communist as part of his flawed long
term legacy, Putting Eric Holder on the Supreme Court would do it. That
Possibility should scare the crap out of all of us. Can you say
"Good-bye 2nd Amendment" for starters?"

Our only hope is that no one on the Supreme Court resigns or retires
Before January 2015 and that Republicans take the senate in the
November, 2014 elections. That is our ONLY hope.

If we didn't already have an incentive to vote, this sure as hell is a huge one!!!
